Rims thoughts

Hi All: I have a chance to trade out my '13 sixer rims for an older style which I love. Do the older rims hold more weight than say the stock '13 v6?

I realize that it will boil down to a preference thing but I'm curious to what you all think?

Will they make my car significantly heavier? I don't know anything about these rims other than I love them.

Oh, lol yes, they will be heavier. Stock rims are always quite heavy, and seeing as how these are likely a much larger (taller / wider) than the stock rims, i would expect them to be heavier as well.

And does anyone have an idea of a fair price if I buy them outright? They are said to be in excellent condition.

I would low ball him. Stock wheels have almost no resale value. I sold my stock tires and wheels for 375.00. They had less than 1000 miles on them. I started at 750.00 but it wasn't going to happen.

Same...go $400 for the set...anyone who tries to sell MOST stock take off parts should expect to get less then 75% of what they THINK they are worth. Sometimes even a brand new unopened part will loose 5-10% resale value. It just depends.

new take-offs with tires and tpms are worth from $400-850. what are you looking at?

w/o insulting the performance difference is not important if you have to ask.

sounds expensive.....I bought my 19" 5 spokes with No tpms but Nero's in good condition for $600. It took me 6 months of looking till I found them at that price but I was in no rush. To me the TPMS would have been worth +$100 They were 2 hrs away but I know shipping is expensive so I looked within driving distance. For me it was a luxury item and was willing to wait till I found a set at a good price unlike if my coffee maker died and all I would do is go to the nearest store and get a new one regardless of the cost.

If you're patient enough you'll find those for $300. No one in their right mind would buy those for $900. Once that seller realizes that he'll be down in the $400 range.

75% of the time bigger rims will be heavier. Im pretty sure my 18 inch rims are lighter then the stock crappy 17 inch rims but i have custom made lightweight rims. The front rims for being 8 in wide only weigh 18.1lbs and my rear rims being 9 in wide weigh 19.1lbs. I noticed better mpg per tank with the new lighter rims and i can spin my heavy *** 29 in tall tires now off the line. Next set of tires will be 45 series around 27.5 in tall so ill be around a 3.82-3.87 effect gear ratio with my 373 gears. Right now i think my effective gear ratio is around 3.61 with my tall tires.

His latest offer is...How about this. Your stock rims and 400$ or 600$ sound fair?

I'm not in a hurry. Is this offer reasonable?

I'd tell him that if all 4 tires were 80% we'd be in the 450 range, but considering I'd have to get 2 tires changed soon that $400 would be my offer.

Older style? You do realize the wheels you show were new to the 2013 Mustang and only offered for two years right?

that^^^ which is why I was wondering what he was getting. Doesn't change my value I think the seller is aiming high. What Vig said...my $400-600 I wouldn't go over $500 but admit to being cheap.

Naw, Mud your good. for stock ...18"s period. Unless they were taken off at the dealer and your selling them to me wrapped in plastic $500 is the most id pay. Just for fun you guys should look up the San Diego Craigslist along with LA and Orange County...tons of people selling stock wheels for more than $600 almost always stay on there for weeks. I tried to sell mine when i first got it. brand new tires and wheels. used my dads GT 500s day i got it. I was asking $500 and it didnt sell for 2 weeks. i finally decided to keep them. Just wasn't worth it to sell for less to me.

The guy said he'd take $400 plus my rims and tires. His front tires are brand new pirelis. The back are Michelin with about 30-40% of tread left. I think I'm going to do it.

I realize my speedometer will be off. Is this anything I can fix with my SCT tuner?

I would wait till a better deal came around. You'd definitely be getting the short end of the stick

The price you are being quoted by everyone here is outright cash value, not a trade plus cash! I sold my 18" GT rims (2014) for $750 as new take-offs (400 miles on tires). I bought the 19" Brembo wheels for $750 as new take-offs with only 200 miles on the tires. If you make a trade, you still need to buy two new tires which puts you out a few hundred more. I say keep looking and be patient.

I've seen them for $400, and that's not asking for wheels on top of that. I think that's asking a lot for some stock wheels with used tires

Those look like the wheels that come on the fp8, most people didn't like them so you shouldn't have a hard time finding some takeoffs for around 400, the shopping is what kills

This.

I'm saying $400 cash; you keep yours.

Especially with unmatched and worn tires that you're going to have to replace soon. 19" tires are not cheap, I promise.
